Turiya paatra features an unusual combination of ridge gourd and paatra. But, however uncommon the combination might sound to you, it is very common in gujarati tradition, and is a must-serve item for weddings held in gujarat. In the customary way, people add the paatras directly without steaming, but that takes much longer to cook. So, i always suggest steaming and adding the paatras as in this quick and easy version.
